I thought I had read a few years ago that electric blankets were associated with a higher risk of cancer? Something about the electromagnetic field? When I searched a couple of minutes ago, everything I saw talked about "weak links" and "inconclusive studies," but this raises a red flag for me.

In our neighborhood, the power company is trying to install these super-tall, heavy electro-magnetic field power lines practically on top of our houses, and they are saying that studies are inconclusive, but some of our neighbors were able to get a hold of these studies, and what they are calling "inconclusive" actually shows a 400% increase in childhood cancers within a mile of these kinds of power lines--but they call that a 4% increase, so it's "inconclusive."

Anyway, I have these microwavable heating pads that are filled with something like rice, and I love them. You can freeze or fridge them, too, in the summer or for headaches.

Rinne had mentioned something like this....some type of thing that you wear (like a bib)....filled with buckwheat and microwaveable. The only thing is it wouldnt *stay* warm all night like the blanket does.

I had heard about electric blankets being bad for you but until my allergies calm down its the only thing that I've been able to use that doesnt bother me. :(

I cant part with it now.

Alison,

I think I must have read that before about the electric blankets. That is why we got rid of ours. Now I just use the heating pad at night for about 20 minutes and it's off for the night.

Rachel,

Are you going to post about your appointment? :)

Susie my dear friend,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope you had a wonderful day :):):)

Did you do anything special?

(sorry it is belated :ph34r: )

And Patti, I am sorry to hear about the news from your gynocologist appt. :( But I hope it will give you some relief from the pain and help with some of your other troublesome symptoms :) What is the latest on the surgery? Did you schedule it already?

I have been busy with holiday preparations and had my hands full with my nieces all week and weekend so not much board time for me. I think I got glutened, or reacted to something, I had some refritos and a tamale from a restaurant, and then gluten-free sweet and sour chicken from Pei Wei, and haven't felt real well since :( .......

Hello to all my other Rachelville friends :)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Julie :D How nice to see you! Sorry that you are having a reaction. Especially this time of year, who has time for this annoying stuff :angry: I've been busy getting the rest of my shopping done, and moving onto wrapping everything. <_< Every year I keep saying that I will wrap things as I bring them into the house. :lol: I really need to listen to myself! :P

They did schedule the surgery for January 3rd at 7:30AM. I'm very much looking forward to getting all of it behind me. I'm really not even nervous--yet! :D I feel, for me at this point in my life, this is the best way to go.

The most worrisome part was thinking about *how the heck am I gonna eat while in the hospital?*!! :huh: I plan to cook beforehand, and freeze meals in individual portions. My husband can then microwave things as I need them, put them in my thermal food carrier, and bring it to me. Luckily, it's not too far away. Hopefully, it will only be two days, and I'll be back home.

I'll try and remember this date. :)

I hope all goes well and good for you for your plan of having "safe" food.

This month will go quickly, especially with preparing for the holidays. :D

Rachel,

Are you going to post about your appointment? :)

Yup. :)

Well....the BioSET lady had heard all about my troubles. :(

She went through all of the testing all over again.....to see if I wasnt holding my treatments. Whatever didnt stick I got re-treated for.

Some of my treatments I was holding (according to the computer). I had 2 treatments for chemicals this past month...one was all of the household chemicals, perfumes and everyday chemicals....the other treatment was for petroleum chemicals.

The first chemical treatment I had reacted to nearly *everything* so my glass for that treatment was big and FULL....when she re-checked these on Thursday I was still reacting to maybe half of them...so the treatment didnt hold for the most problematic chemicals. :(

When she re-checked the petroleum chemicals I wasnt reactive to any of them so that treatment held so far. I also show no reaction to grasses or pollens anymore. There was alot of environmental stuff I'm still reacting to...ALOT of stuff....although not all of it was stuff I'd been treated for yet.

She tested me for water and air in various cities around the area. All the little vials would say something like San Francisco water 2006, or San Jose air 2006, etc. I didnt really react to many of these though.

She said I have some really "entrenched" environmental sensitivities. I'm not sure if I know the meaning of "entrenched" but I'm thinking its not good. :(

I asked her if mercury by itself could be causing all this but she said no. She said shes treated lots of people with high levels of mercury and they didnt have this level of environmental sensitivities.

I told her I must be the worst she's seen so far....she said that I'm not the worst.....shes treated people with far worse chemical and environmental sensitivities. She said some people cannot even enter the building and she needs to treat them outside in the parking lot. She said I'm not nearly as bad as some of these other people. I'm able to be there in the room and I'm not having noticeable reactions to anything.

However....even though I'm not the WORST she said that I am her biggest challenge so far. :huh:

That is not good news. :(

She said that even though alot of people are more reactive they respond to the chemical treatment and are able to hold them. She said they notice improvement. So basically she said I'm the first person she's ever had who didnt clear the chemical treatment. She said she's never had to repeat a chemical treatment until now.

I asked her if those other people also have Lyme?? She said that they dont have Lyme. They are mostly people who have had some kind of over-exposure to chemicals and it affected their detox pathways and made them become chemically sensitive. This is not the case with me.....(unless the ex really did poison me :huh: )...she said she's not sure what could have occurred to make me THIS chemically sensitive.

So now I've become her biggest challenge. GREAT.

She did alot of testing....yeah...I'm still reacting to alot of stuff. The computer said the cold and sugar are making the sensitivities worse.

I already know about the cold being a problem from what my Dr. said. There is sugar in my ice cream but also natural sugar in the applesauce and my potatoes get turned to sugar.....but obviously I have to eat. <_< So I will have to have some sugars unless I go back on the candida diet....which just gives me other problems because of salicylates.

I've been reading alot about Lyme and its toxins. It creates neurotoxins which get redistributed through the body and essentially poisons us. If I'm not detoxing it would make sense that I would become reactive to chemicals but I'm not sure if this alone could overwhelm my liver and detox pathways.

Another possibility that has occurred to me is radiation. When I got sick the Dr.'s said I would not get better without the radioactive iodine for Graves Disease. I had always refused this treatment but because I was feeling so bad and not knowing what else to do....I gave in.

This was a mistake. For one thing they had not looked into any other possibilities for my symptoms. Obviously they would have never diagnosed me but I wish I had been pro-active from the start and trusted my instinct about the RAI.

The RAI is "suppossed" to be absorbed *solely* by the thyroid...no other organs will absorb the radiation and it will be excreted through urine in a metter of days. I was told to urinate frequently following the treatment to excrete the radiation. Noone was suppossed to sleep in the same bed with me or use the same toilet. All my clothes had to washed seperately, my utensils, etc. Sound scary? Yeah....thats why I didnt want to do it in the first place. <_<

Anyways, now I have to wonder. I was already sick...already had the dental work done and was having different metals in my mouth. I already had Lyme and was accumulating mercury at that time.

So first they gave me a very small dose of the radioactive iodine for testing purposes. They did an uptake test on me and a scan of my thyroid. Right after that I had an *increase* in symptoms. As if I was becoming MORE toxic. I think it was only a day or 2 later that I had to go out on disibilty. I got little bumps on my face the next day and was very sweaty....I'm thinking my body was trying to detox the radiation any way it could. <_<

Then I get the BIG dose of RAI and yeah....after that is when the environmental and food stuff started becoming more noticeable. My symptoms got worse and these werent thyroid symptoms. <_<

Also....those bumps....they were ALL OVER....major breakouts for a couple months after the RAI.

So I ask the BioSET lady.....what if my detox pathways were already impaired?? If I was suppossed to excrete the radiation....but my liver was already too toxic....what if it wasnt excreted promptly?? :unsure:

NOT GOOD!!

She said I could STILL have radiation stored inside me. :blink: I dont know if its possible since RAI is different from other forms of radiation such as chemo.....but still.....if I wasnt able to detox (which is highly likely given all we know now about the Lyme and mercury) what happened with the radiation???

She said it could lead to Cancer! :o

So yeah....I'm leaning toward thinking the radiation has something to do with how bad off I am or that my Candida is just out of control from *everything* that has occurred. Lyme, mercury, poor diet, stress, radiation, antibiotics, etc....it *could* be Candida causing alot of the sensitivities but I'm just not sure.

Its all scary to me. :(

I've been reading on the Lyme board. Alot of people have heightened senses of smell, hearing, taste, etc. I'm not alone on this thats for sure. They describe the exact phenomenon that I experience. Hallucinating smells....smelling stuff that noone else notices, smelling stuff from far far away, etc. Someone mentioned *touching* a dryer sheet and then tasting it on their tongue. This is EXACTLY what I experience. I dont have to touch something though...I can walk by someone who has a strong perfume on and then be tasting it in my mouth for some time afterward. Its almost super natural sometimes. :unsure:

Its listed as a Lyme symptom "Olfactory sensitivity" or something like that. I'm not sure if its caused by the Lyme or the candida though. <_<

Some smells are not from chemicals but yet still are bothersome to me. It cant be just from Candida because the sensitivity was still there when I was very actively treating Candida.

Anyways, the Bioset lady retreated me for everything that I was still having problems with and she tested them all again right after I got treated. She said if I was still reacting I was gonna go back into the treatment room until it showed that I had cleared the chemicals.

I didnt have to go back into the room....the computer said I cleared the treatment. I left there reacting EVEN MORE than ever. I could barely breathe outside. I was exhausted and slept for like 12 hours after the treatment. I know this is most likely normal and probably worse for someone like me with major detox problems.

She said that she will retest everything at my next appt. to see if I'm holding the treatment. It doesnt seem like I am though...I'm still pretty reactive. :(

The whole thing sucks and I dont know how I'll ever get better...especially since I probably cant even get treatment with all this political crap of denying antibiotics going on. :angry:

The sensitivities seem to flare up even worse every 4 weeks....which is indicative of Lyme. I think it cycles every 28 days or something...it reproduces itself. Suppossedly this is why IgM's can stay positive for years with Lyme Disease. Usually IgM's are only elevated at the beginning of infection....but with Lyme the IgM's can get produced everytime the Lyme reproduces itself......like its a brand new infection.

We'll see what happens at my next appt. She tested me for the Cats Claw (Samento) that my Dr. wants to start me on. She doesnt sell it so I have to go back to the Dr. to get some. She just tested it and told me what dose I can take.

She said that radiation *can* be detoxed so she started me on that in case there is still some radiation inside me. Its just drops for detoxing radiation.

I'm pretty sick of my body feeling so darned poisoned though. :(

I want to go through more testing to make sure I have Lyme.

Yeah....Carla you were right....I guess I do get into denial but its not hard to do. I'd probably still do it even with clearly positive Western Blots.....it just seems hard to believe a bug could do all this. :huh:

I would probably go into denial alot less if I had more positive test results staring me in the face.

Even with more positive results, you still struggle ... I just don't struggle with whether it's Lyme, just whether I'm really sick. :blink: Duh. Normal people do normal things .... I can't do anything! Adam's out of town till Wednesday ... I'm concerned about getting finished Christmas shopping!!

I looked back :ph34r: and looked at your results now that I'm more familiar with what it all means. With 41 being postive, and 34 &39 being IND, that is significant according to Burrascano's guidelines. It would help if just one of those had been positive instead of IND and would be a definitive diagnosis according to him, but that could be because your immune system is so taxed. Once BioSET has cleared you a bit, does your doc think you might retest positive then? Maybe the Samento will help with that. Your results look significant to me, plus with your symptoms ....

BTW, I don't think denial is a bad thing .... I didn't mean it in a bad way. I suffer from it myself. I'm very familiar with it!!! :)

Carla,

Yeah....my Dr. thinks the Wetern Blots would be positive after antibiotics but I didnt ask him about Samento. Obviously I'm not going on antibiotics any time soon....I do believe its the right choice to hold off on those but I'm also impatient. :rolleyes:

I know that everyone says that the IND means "not negative" but all I see is "NOT POSITIVE".

I guess talking to Nick Harris at Igenix about my positive IFA results might be helpful....if I ever get around to it. :rolleyes:

I definately want to do more testing. From what I've read lots of things can change and cause the immune system to either produce or not produce antibodies on any given day. Some people just never produce alot of antibodies and never test positive in antibody testing so they have to use other testing methods. I think my body produces antibodies because my IFA titer was high.

I know my immune system is taxed though... <_<

I'm told the most significant bands on my test are 30, 34 and 39.....but unfortunately 34 and 39 are IND's instead of +.

Oh....about the growth cycle of Lyme....

It has been observed that symptoms will flare in cycles every four weeks. It is thought that this represents the organism's cell cycle, with the growth phase occurring once per month. As antibiotics will only kill bacteria during their growth phase, therapy is designed to bracket at least one whole generation cycle. This is why the minimum treatment duration should be at least four weeks. If the antibiotics are working, over time these flares will lessen in severity and duration. The very occurrence of ongoing monthly cycles indicates that living organisms are still present and that antibiotics should be continued.

Do you get flare-ups every 4 weeks?? Have you ever noticed this?

BTW, I don't think denial is a bad thing .... I didn't mean it in a bad way. I suffer from it myself. I'm very familiar with it!!! :)

Hehe....I dont think its a bad thing either. I just consider myself to be VERY thorough....ok...maybe a little OVERLY thorough. :ph34r:

Rachel, I do not have flare ups every four weeks. I thought that happened when you went on treatment ... the antibiotics kill all the bacteria in one stage, cause a die-off, and it's four weeks before you have them in that stage again because the previous stage has to mature. I thought the four-week thing was referring to the herx from treatment. I could be wrong ... but that was my understanding of it.

Right now, I'm at the "feel like crud and getting worse" stage. <_< I've really been going downhill since July. However, prior to that I lived with just Morgan, so it might have been that I just didn't have as much that I should be doing and can't!

No...its not just when on antibiotics. It can happen through the entire illness. I've had 4 week flare-ups the whole time I've been sick. I've always blamed it on hormones...this was back when I was *convinced* this was some thyroid related thing. Even though I "grew" out of that line of thinking I still always blamed it on hormones....cuz I couldnt think of anything better. :rolleyes: The only thing I couldnt understand is why it wasnt occurring at the time of my period. :huh:

My flare up is in the middle of my cycle and always has been.....its around the time that I ovulate so this is why I blamed hormones. Maybe its not though....maybe its Lyme?? :unsure:

Here is more from the article I was posting from...

Its from Dr. Burrascano....this is where it goes into the flare-ups and antibiotics....

With treatment, these monthly symptom flares are exaggerated and presumably represent recurrent Herxheimer-like reactions as Bb enters its vulnerable growth phase. For unknown reasons, the worst occurs at the fourth week of treatment. Observation suggest that the more severe this reaction, the higher the germ load, and the more ill the patient. In those with long-standing highly symptomatic disease who are on I.V. therapy, the week-four flare can be very severe, similar to a serum sickness reaction, and be associated with transient leucopenia and/or elevations in liver enzymes

Heres the link to the entire page...

http://www2.Lame Advertisement/domino/file.nsf/UID/guidelines

So I guess if my monthly flare-ups are from the Lyme they're gonna get worse with treatment. :blink:

Thats just GREAT.....more FUN STUFF to look forward to. WOO-HOO!! :rolleyes:

Rachel--sending you some much-needed hugs and positive energy!!

Hope you feel better tomorrow....

Thanks Alison....I needed that! :D

Also been getting some positive vibes from reading Mamaw's posts about BioSET on the electrodermal testing thread. :)

Hello all, I'm back after a wonderful visit with my new grand-daughter, son and daughter-in-law. I totally got to be Gramma and shopped for the baby and spoiled mom and dad a little too.

So much to comment on. In a nutshell, you are a harder case but you have cleared some things. She will get you through the rest, just give it time.

The cold and sugar are interesting. You've taken care of the cold haven't you. Sugar, as you said not much you can do about that right now.

Have you been reactive all weekend? I'll be curious to see how Tuesday pans out. I assume you have consistent appointment days.

The radiation thing is scary. :ph34r: Is there any way for her to tell if that is causing a problem?

I think your tests are positive but by all means call Igenix and chat with them. :)

Also been getting some positive vibes from reading Mamaw's posts about BioSET on the electrodermal testing thread. :)

Haven't seen that.....will have to go look for it.

Hello all, I'm back after a wonderful visit with my new grand-daughter, son and daughter-in-law. I totally got to be Gramma and shopped for the baby and spoiled mom and dad a little too.

Awww, so glad you got to go see your granddaughter. What fun!

What are the symptoms of radiation poisoning? Obviously, that wouldn't explain the Lyme, but if the Lyme prevented you from eliminating the thyroid potion, maybe now, the radioactive stuff still in your body is doing weird unpleasant things. Giant, glow-in-the-dark spirochetes? :blink:

Rachel, that is interesting. I've never had the four week flare ups ... I just feel bad all the time. I guess if it happens around ovulation, it could be because ovulation makes your body temperature go up four tenths of a degree. I bet it has to do with the luteal phase of the cycle.

Rachel, I know you're limited in what you can eat, but I've heard that miso is good for radiation poisoning. Maybe the BioSET lady can clear miso for you. You could use it as a flavoring for your beef .... I'm afraid it would be gross with melted ice cream or popcorn!!

Rinne, welcome back!! I bet you had a great time!!

Hi Donna! :D

Funny you should mention this because I just came from Mervyns....got my new blanket. :)

They had electric mattress pads this time....I didnt see them last time. :huh:

Anyways, I stared at them for a moment but decided to stick with the blanket cuz I had no idea what the mattress pad was???

Do you just sleep right on top of it or what?? :unsure:

I like having a blanket cuz you can carry it around with you....I can wrap it around me while I'm on the computer and stay toasty. Can this be done with a mattress pad thingy??

I better stop talking about my blanket so much....my mom was making fun of me...calling it my "blankie". :ph34r:

She's happy though...cuz ever since I got it I've actually gone to bed early! :o

The electric mattress pad I have is like a fitted bottom sheet...it has the formed elasticized sides, so it wouldn't be very portable. I put that on then a fitted sheet, so yep, except for the sheet you lay right on top of it. I supposed you could lay directly on it, but the sheet is very washable, whereas, not so sure about the pad, lol. Anyway, I also have one of the one's you use for your computer. I use it on the couch...mine is smaller than a normal blanket, but just perfect to wrap around me on the couch!

I have no idea what symptoms are associated with radiation poisoning. :huh:

Another thing to do a search on....

The bioset lady said the that if radiation didnt get detoxed it could be damaging any of my organs. :(

I dont know if there's any way to know if radiation is a problem or not. I think of all my organs my liver is just the biggest problem right now but that doesnt mean that its damaged....it could just be over worked and dealing with too many toxins. I just need to detox all this nasty stuff.....get it out of my body somehow.

Yeah....glow in the dark spirochetes...all kinds of crazy stuff going on inside me. :blink:

I bet it has to do with the luteal phase of the cycle.

Luteal phase??? :huh:

Is this something to do with ovulation? :unsure:

Miso....nope I know I cant have that right now.

I dont know when we're gonna get started on the foods but I hope its soon. I'm kind of tired of my same 5 foods. This last week I added in a few Amy's dinners. I know its not a great idea but I need some variation....at least for a week or 2. One day I got diarreah though. :ph34r: Scott wants us to spell out the words so sorry to be so graphic. :lol:

Oh....I also tried some frozen waffles. I got some heart palps and upset stomach. That would be from sulfites for sure...I'm not having anymore waffles....or at least not 4 at once. ;) I also woke up the next morning with numb hands. <_<

At least after eating the same 5 foods for more than 2 months I can now tell really easily if something is not OK. :D The waffles are not OK.....neither is the one Amy's dinner that made me lose weight. :angry:

Luteal phase??? :huh:

Is this something to do with ovulation? :unsure:

After ovulation your temperature rises 4 tenths of a degree ... it's called the luteal phase. (I used to teach natural family planning). I'd bet the rise in temp. is what causes the herx. Just a guess.

diarreah :ph34r: Scott wants us to spell out the words so sorry to be so graphic. :lol:
